As a leading provider of specialized and sustainable material solutions that transform customer challenges into innovations for a better world, our diverse talent is at the forefront of all we do. Our top priority is the safety, health, and well-being of our nearly ten thousand associates worldwide.
The newest members of this global force are our 1,000 colleagues from Avient Protective Materials, who we proudly welcomed with the addition of this business in 2022. Their unique strengths, combined with our shared passions and values, truly make us better together.
Eighty-nine percent of our associates responded to our 2022 employee engagement survey, reaching an all-time high participation rate. Compared to the prior year, we increased our scores across all five Great Place to Work® (GPTW) Institute’s Trust Model categories. In addition, our positive responses are on average 22 points higher than the typical U.S.-based company.*
Based on these scores, the GPTW Institute honored us with the distinction of Great Place to Work® for the fourth year in a row. In a year of challenges around the world and pivotal changes at Avient, we took care of each other and grew our culture along the way. How our associates continue to speak with pride about Avient is what sets our workplace apart from other companies.
